Transoft Solutions Introduces SIGMA

Trimble-Trident-3-D-4-5Transoft Solutions, developers of industry leading software for the global engineering and architectural communities, announces the

launch of SIGMA, a new traffic sign planning software solution. SIGMA has been developed for Traffic Engineers and Maintenance

Engineers to design, maintain, and report, on CAD generated traffic signing as well as temporary traffic control signing plans through

supported sign libraries. Shipping will begin on Thursday July 28, 2009.

“SIGMA is set to revolutionize the manner in which traffic engineers and maintenance operations design and manage roadway traffic

signing plans,” said Michael Frost, Product Manager. “This software delivers what is needed in the AEC industry right now – a

productivity enhancing, practical solution that provides substantial value.”

SIGMA gives users the ability to easily search Federal / State Standard sign libraries, GuidSIGN signs, or user-defined simple CAD

drafted cell / block drawings to create placeable sign assemblies. Users can search the SIGMA sign libraries without having to know

the sign’s reference number and create sign assemblies quickly and easily. Through the Create Sign Assembly tool, users can create

a sign assembly that supports typical mounting types and options, multiple sign facings, as well as assembly status by using included

typical sign arrangements or by dynamic arrangement.

The placement process allows the user to drag the assembly parallel to either a reference line / stationing alignment, or offset

reference geometry (edge of pavement), or enter a specific distance / station. The wizard-like placement process is a set of specific

steps that allows the user to proceed or go back steps to make adjustments as needed. Once a sign is placed, the Report Manager

allows the user to define and save customized reports in .CSV format for importation into the user’s preferred spreadsheet


SIGMA comes with one library of choice at time of purchase. To provide users with maximum value and minimum costs, additional

libraries are available for purchase separately so that engineers have what is needed without paying for libraries that are not required.

Currently, there are 5300 US signs available in 11 libraries with 5000 signs – including signs for Canada and Australia – to be

released in the near future.

To take part in the SIGMA introduction webcast,

email address, a daytime phone number, email address, and the company you represent. Due to limited space an invitation cannot

be guaranteed.
